Cardiogenetics Program

The Cardiogenetics Program at the Smidt Heart Institute is a comprehensive program for patients and families with a history of genetic heart conditions. Our dedicated expert team provides genetic counseling, personalized care and support to patients and families with hereditary diseases of the heart. Genetic counseling, an essential component of our services, helps patients and their families to understand the physical and emotional implications of having an inherited heart condition.

Familial Arrhythmia Program

Heart conditions require special expertise to monitor and control symptoms. When those heart conditions have a genetic risk, you want to make certain your family is evaluated as well.
